We’re so glad you found us! The Closet (a trailer) provides essential goods to families caring for children through foster, adoptive, kinship and Safe Families placements.  Items include clothing, baby gear, strollers, shoes, books, and toys, to name a few. Our hope is that by taking these items off your budget, you’re able to invest in other areas of life, whether it’s paying for tutoring or taking your family on a fun outing, because we know the challenges you face.  We hope to make you feel cared for and “seen” in this season of your family's life. 

We’re open twice a month, and one of those “open shop” days is followed by our monthly Support Group.  The Closet is also available by appointment for families who take emergency placements.  If you have a specific need or item, please don't hesitate to ask. Our heart is to serve you.
